2) Sonrisas de Papel (paper smiles) : A new project launched in 2020, using the bagazo (remaining fiber pulp) of the cooked and mashed agave, we are working with the government of Jalisco to create a small manual production to create agave paper, that will create job opportunities for women and increase local income from tourism.
3) Taberna ‘La Reina’ is the magical place, where ‘La Reina’ is made, in which we are developing tours so that visitors can live the experience, learn about the process and meet the family.
